The 9th edition of the “All about Economy Film Days” will take place in 17-20 May 2022 at the RUDN University in Moscow. Students from Lucerne can participate in this event.
Documentaries and feature films allow a different approach to the economy. While discussing the films with local students, you also learn a lot about the host country.
Teaching economics can be more than formulas, calculations and the homo economicus. Which documentaries help us understand current economic events and their backdrop? How well do feature films depict the reality of the economy? Which films manage to combine educational purposes, factual knowledge and tension? And which films open up options for the future development of our economy and society?
